Warm and Creamy Bacon Dip
Makes: 4 cups; Preparation time: 10 minutes; Total time: 40 minutes.
8 ounces low-fat cream cheese, softened
2 cups low-fat sour cream
6 slices cooked and crumbled bacon
1½ cups shredded reduced-fat Mexican-style cheese blend
1 cup chopped green onion
Toasted bread slices
Vegetables on skewers
Preheat the oven to 400 F. In a bowl, combine all ingredients. Place the mixture in a 1-quart baking dish. Cover. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until bubbling and hot.
Instead of a baking dish, you can slice about a 1-inch piece off the top of a round sourdough loaf; set the piece aside. Hollow out the loaf; cut up the bread to serve with the dip. Spoon the dip into the hollowed-out crust. Replace the top slice. Wrap the bread bowl in foil and bake in the preheated 400 F oven for 30 minutes.
